A Harmony for Steve is Available Today!

harmonyad2

HARMONY and STEVE draw closer and spiritual war wages when heaven meets hell.

Though both are internationally recognized singing mega-stars, HARMONY Harper and STEVE Slayer could not be more different. Steve screams out sinfully satanic strains while Harmony uses her God given gifts to bring glory to the Risen Savoir. Somehow, when they meet on even terms, their differences don’t matter. Can they be together when fanatical followers would do anything to keep them apart?

Christian contemporary singing sensation, daughter of Christian radio and media family counselor icons, HARMONY HARPER, has spent her entire life serving God. From teen sensation to celebrated adult Christian contemporary music artist, she regularly plays sold-out concerts everywhere she goes. Nearing thirty, and nearing burnout, Harmony heads to her mountain cabin hideaway to commune with Christ and compose some new music.

Hard rocker STEVE SLAYER faces an ultimatum: keep rocking life the hard way and watch his organs fail due to addictions, or, sober up – for real this time – and live. Hiding out in the mountains of Oregon, he spends weeks detoxing. Finally strong enough to venture into town, he comes face to face with Harmony. Over the next several weeks, the two become unlikely friends as Steve learns to love and trust God, and mutual attraction surprises them both.

Once news of their budding romance reaches the world, no one is happy. Not her people – not his people. Then letters written in blood start arriving. An attack on a concert threatens more than just their lives. Harmony and Steve realize the threats might just be real.

Can Harmony and Steve discover who wants to destroy them, or will the enemy bring their house down in a dissonance that strikes at their very souls?

A Harmony for Steve is now available at any of the following eBook retailers:

Christian Fiction Friday: April 24th

Welcome to this week’s edition of Christian Fiction Friday brought to you by me and my lovely and talented co-host, Alana Terry! This is a chance for Christian authors to post short snippets from their works in progress! Easy and fun!

My snippet this week is from my current work-in-progress, A Harmony for Steve, book 4 in the Song of Suspense Series:

cover-front_9781939603-4ah4s_640When everyone had tasted his flesh, he used the ritual cloth to bandage his skin and stop the bleeding. Francis then intoned, “What else do you bring.”

Charles smiled and answered, “I bring an enemy for the flames.” With that, he lifted the Harmony Harper CD from the ground and offered it to Francis.

Francis grinned and stripped the cellophane from it, then removed the CD disk itself from the case. He allowed the case to fall to the ground. It would be an excellent place for Charles to hide a bootleg copy of Steven Slayer or some other true believer’s work.

Francis held the CD high and announced, “Nos vobis inimicus!” We bring you your enemy. Then he tossed the CD into the flames. Harmony Harper’s smiling face on the front of the CD melted as the flames engulfed it.e.

An Aria for Nick

I haven’t done much in the line of marketing An Aria for Nick.  I released it in mid-November (not a great idea – most of my market is too busy that time of year to read) and almost immediately got to work writing Christmas Diamond.  Since that book was for Christmas, I kind of turned all all of the attention to that little novella.

But, while I’ve not been talking much about it, people have been reading it, and the feedback has been overwhelming.  Here is a review I received earlier this week:

Every time I finish one of Hallee Bridgeman’s novels, I think she’s reached the peak of storytelling and the next one can’t possibly be as good. And then every time I read the next one, it’s even better than the one before! This story kept me up late reading because I could not bear to stop. The non-stop action and hectic pace leave you breathless but never overshadow the building relationship between Aria and Nick. These characters, both with devastating pasts, never waver in their faith in God, yet still maintain absolute believabilty in their circumstances. They feel pain and loss, struggle with forgiveness and trust, and fall in love while living out a Christian lifestyle in very real ways. I’m already looking forward to the next one!

If you are looking for an exciting, turn-your-page-as-fast-as-you-can story, An Aria for Nick is absolutely the story for you.

Here is a never before seen excerpt from An Aria for Nick:

The Song of Suspense Series

THE agent code named Hecate, called Kate, stared down at the sleeping man. His round body lay curled around a pillow and he regularly mumbled in his sleep. She reached over and slapped at his shoulder. “Wakey, wakey, Ricardo.”

The small man jerked awake and gave a startled cry. When he saw Kate standing over his bed holding a gun on him, he sat up and scooted quickly back against the headboard.

“Wha —?”

“Shh,” Kate explained, smiling as she put a booted foot up on the bed and leaned forward. She had to keep herself from gagging at the stink of the breath panting in and out of his open mouth. “I’ll do the asking.” For her own health and well being, she straightened some and put a little bit of distance between them. “Now, a man and a woman came to you a couple of days ago. She had long dark hair and they probably didn’t speak much English. Know who I’m talking about?”

“I don’t know nothing,” Ricardo said defiantly.

“It’s anything,” Kate corrected. “As in, ‘I don’t know anything.’ But it’s a common misuse. Now, tell me, what names did they give you, this couple? Carlos Garcia? And what was the girl calling herself?”

Ricardo crossed his arms and stared down the barrel of the pistol. “I … don’t… know …anything. Comprende?”

Kate reached into the boot she wore on her foot she currently had propped up on Ricardo’s mattress and slowly withdrew a long knife. “Oh, my. How very impressively macho,” she observed, clucking her tongue. “I see I’m going to need to jog your memory. I bet if I surgically removed the source of some of that machismo it might just help you to recollect some details.”

Ricardo looked into her eyes and realized that he did not want to proceed further down this conversational path, not with this woman. He held both hands up and whispered, “Florida. I took them to Florida.”

“Better,” she said gently as she resheathed the knife. “Now, I bet you remember where you took them in Florida, don’t you?”

The Back Cover:

The Only Man Who Can Save Her Life Has Been Dead for a Decade.

Raised in a loving home, Aria Suarez dreamed of becoming a professional pianist happily married to her high school crush. After the only boy who ever caught her eye dies a hero’s death and her wrist is shattered along with her future plans, she turns her brilliant musical mind to nuclear engineering and solving mysteries of science.

Abandoned to an abusive father at five, Nick Williams grew up dreaming of escape; of enlisting in the Army and leaving his wretched life behind; of proving himself worthy of the girl he loves. But the crucible of combat offers only the escape of death.

A decade later, Aria uncovers a nuclear plot that threatens the heart of our very nation. Sinister forces surround and threaten her when, out of nowhere, the man who reportedly died so many years before returns as if from the grave — intent on protecting her.

Has God finally joined them together?

Or is Aria doomed to mourn Nick twice?
